Where It Ends



Another trip to the pool at the end of our drive. But the first time ive seen the sunset reflected in the water. Depending on the time of the year, the sun is normally blocked off by a few hills before it turns into the red dramatic ending. Have been waiting until the sun sets in that exact spot for several months and i was finally was there to see it, and to top it off, it was the best sunset we've had in a while.

But that's not the whole story. I was also blessed with my streak of bad luck. Of all the times, my nose starts bleeding (sorry to the people who hate the thought of blood) but it was poring out. Went everywhere and had my head over the water for ages but didn't show any signs of stopping for about half an hour. But regardless i still set up my tripod with my nose still dripping and got a few shots. Had to phone to have some one pick me up as i was feeling rather weak and didnt want to walk another mile home.

Hope you like it, i think it was worth all the hassle!


6 shot HDR. Canon 20D with Sigma 10-20mm. Generated in photomatix and further editing in photoshop.

EDIT: Thanks for all the favs, I've updated the file to the more natural version, with reduced noise, a better composition and slightly less sharp.
